Pizza Week….potato&mozzarella

Here is another pizza topping, very famous here in Italy.

if you want to know how to make pizza dough click here

When there is no tomato on the topping we use to call it focaccia instead of pizza….so focaccia potato and mozzarella would be more appropriate!.

I’ve made it last weekend and my friends LOVED IT….


While the dough is raising. peel 1 big potato and cut into very thin slices. ( about 1 mm – 0.47 in) and put the slices into boiling water for 4/5 minutes.

Once you have streched the dough from the middle  out by your hands. Sprinkle some flour on a baking pan and put the dough on.

Spread some extravirgin olive oil all over the dough and add the potato you have already prepared.

again put some extravirgin olive oil all over it , salt, black pepper, rosmery.

Put in the oven ( 420 F°) please notice that the fun must be turned off!!

cook for about 20 minutes…or until the bottom is crunchy…

Put the shredded mozzarella all over it just few minutes before taking the pizza off the oven….

  1. Can you go hotter on the oven with a shorter bake time or does that not give the potatoes time to bake? I like my pizza oven really hot with a bake no more than a few minutes, but I haven’t tried potatoes before. Looks delicious!
